The Company's short-term liquidity position (cash and cash equivalents plus accounts receivable, minus accounts payable and accrued liabilities) stands at $4.12 million compared to $1.56 million October 2006.

The Company's future income tax liability increased to $1.93 million at October 31 2007, compared to $1.86 million October 2006 and $315,000 at April 30, 2007. As previously noted, the Company does not expect to pay income taxes (other than capital taxes) for the foreseeable future.

It should be noted that the Company's core business, rental of recreational vehicles, is seasonal in nature with the majority of its revenue being earned during the May to October period, its first and second quarters. The majority of the company's direct expenses are incurred in that same period. The Company markets rental units and fleet inventory available for sale on a continuous basis throughout the year, however sales of such units are generally strongest in the spring and early summer. As a result of ongoing interest, amortization and adjustments and selling, general and administrative expenses, the last two quarters of the fiscal year normally produce operating losses. Losses incurred in the last two quarters may exceed profits earned in the first two quarters of the fiscal year.

The financial data included in this release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), except for the term cash flow from operations. Cash flow from operations as presented does not have any standardized meaning under Canadian GAAP and therefore, it may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures for other entities. Cash flow from operations has been presented for information purposes only, and should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, cash flow from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP.
